Mount Athos Pilgrims Pray for Ukraine: Greek Orthodox monks live in seclusion for several centuries

20 ratings | 1909 views
The Greek Orthodox monastic monastery of Karoulia – located in the most remote part of Mount Athos. And even here, the monks are praying for an end to the war in eastern Ukraine. They have lived in the sacred caves for several centuries – living off rain water and vegetation. There are no roads here – the only way to reach the settlements through the rocky and dry landscape is via a ferry and long climb up the rock face. It's not an easy feat if you're afraid of heights.

It is a dad thing for people to war, but sometimes it's necessary for good, as Melchisedek battled. As I understand it. But in Orthodoxy, we all pray for our military and civil authority, which if only one nation was christian, it's make sense. BUT, we're in most of the world. Arab countries, Slavic countries, European countries, Asian countries, African countries, where I almost believe the prayer should be modified to say something other than our prayer as is. But, it has to be as was told by Christ. Yet, we have so much in common with each other from all nations. We all desire good, we all desire love, we all desire not being managed or nuisanced, what I'd guess would fit the biblical verse of a righteous man having his soul vexed. Too many times things look simpler than they are and too many times a person judges another without knowing anything about that persons' world. Which in one city, there can be a million people and I wouldn't doubt a thousand of more different worlds. But for those of us who desire God, we need to reinterate what we're to do and not to do. I had two icons that had statement made, with small pictures, but it was done in the Deuterocanical books, so that it would be on our conscious mind. Which we also need each others support. That applies to all that desire God. Where all the money spent in destruction in all countries, if everyone could trust one another and know that the other wouldn't be tempted and overcome by Satan, can you imagine the quality of life that's be realized worldwide, provided we'd serve God. But we all know, too many, maybe even ourselves would hold back as did Annanais and Sapphira, where everyone would respond by getting what they can get to avoid being left desolate and alone. Which when Christ returns, the son of perdition is to be revealed where I'm only guessing masses of people will see how they've been played against one another, having their eyes opened, where once aware and conscious of it, everyone would pull together and turn away from war. Correct me if I'm mistaken, but it's biblical.

UT is attempting to distort these "Christian" monks are in support of JEWISH Kiev. And lets not forget it was JEW Kiev with the support of NATO that took up weapons by murdering Innocent east Ukrainians civilians whilst asleep, but naturally JEW owned UT wont say that.
